So... I used to see this "occasionally". But now in just about every wz, I will see sages/sorcs sitting in a corner, sacrificing their health + re-healing in order to boost their stats.

In some ways it's less of an issue vs the other balance issues, since them doing that doesn't directly impact my play. But it's still unfortunate that we can't trust the scoreboard at the end of the wz. So what if that sage/sorc healed for 400k... how much of that was from self-healing?

How about, whenever they do the HP sacrifice thing, they gain a de-buff that prevents them from self-healing for x seconds?

Nerf... stat padding. Really? If they want to go hide in a corner and eke out 300-400k healing all match, let them, their team will suffer for it and they'll get an average score on the board with a few medals. If they're doing it on a node, they're either going to be a meatshield or die eventually and then find the other node you hold, forcing them into combat.

i highly doubt a sage/sorc is going to do 300-400k by consumption on themselves. Also its an essential part of sage healing for regenerating force quickest way to regen is to stand your aoe heal and noble sacrifice/consumption if you're full heal or use the instaheal with recklessness. Its a risky way of energy management especially considering they are the squishiest class in the game but this is the only way a sorc/sage regens there force.

now lets compare to this to say.. your operative... oh wait just press a button and get full energy or spam diagnostic scan. consumption and rehealing is a VITAL part of healing for sorc and if you ever played one you'd know this.

Someone camping a node doing this will be pretty obvious by the fact they'll have next to 0 kills credited..

If someone is hiding in a corner doing this, they need to be publicly shamed and ignored so they can't find warzone groups anymore. If they are doing this while defending a node, let them have their fun. Standing at a node that isn't being attacked is awful, and if they can earn an extra medal or two while pulling this duty, so be it.

There are not many things more satisfying than walking, as a scrapper, up to a stat-padding sorc at a node.

I play both Sorc and Operative:

There are LOTS of plusses playing an Operative for PvP over Sorc any day of the week. The only thing Sorc has advantage is the bubble stun.

If you want to talk about energy efficiency, Operatives are OP for that:

- They got a proc energy restore boost that helps greatly.
- They got the OMGWTFBBQ restore boost that can get full energy quickly.
- They EVEN got a slow way to restore ENERGY without sacrificing HP.

Now what does the Sorc has for restoring their force:

- Consumption, which gets back about 5 to 10% force back with a sacrifice to HP (which is slightly noticeable). But there is a downside to that because the normal way to restore Force is to do nothing but when you use consumption it lessons the number of force restored per tick. Therefore nerfing this will **** up the Force efficiency for this class for heals (DPS doesnt use consumption).

Not sure for troopers/mercs for heals, but they got multiple tools to help them out too I hear.
